Try Rocky Socks
My husband and I tried the SealSkinz gloves. They're waterproof for awhile if it doesn't rain much. After an hour or so they started absorbing so much water they seemed to double in weigh...

Re: Re: MB Dry Tec vs eVENT
After participating in a thread similar to this about six months ago, I bought the MB Peak jacket and liked it a lot. Shortly afterwards, I happened luckily onto Brett's posting of his eVent I...

Re: Stove for Hiny Can Pot

I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...
